Abstract : Basic cross-correlation and spectrum analysis type noise radars are defined and analyzed. Inherent undesirable characteristics of the basic spectrum analysis type radar are discussed. A modification of the spectrum analysis radar that removes most of these undesirable characteristics is described and evaluated. A new spectrum analysis system designed to detect moving targets is presented. Comparison is made of the detection capabilities of all four noise radar systems in the presence of extraneous noise.
